A PENSIONER has appeared in court charged over the death of a teenage cyclist who was knocked off his bike on a country road.

Heather Butler, 67, is accused of being over the drink-drive limit when she hit 15-year-old Sam Brown’s bike with her Audi A4 as he cycled along the B1230 Hull Road at Eastrington last September.

A friend, also 15, who was cycling with Sam, was hospitalised after suffering broken bones.
